We (and 49 Others) Are the Best!

Medicareer, a blog about "new developments in health care careers," has compiled a list of what they think are the top 50 biotechnology blogs, encompassing the fields of health, ethics, agriculture, policy, and business, among other things. We’re not usually ones to brag, but the Daily Scan made the list, along with some of our personal favorites. The others include Discovering Biology in a Digital World, MyBiotech Life, and PolITiGenomics.

The Scan

Genome Sequences Reveal Range Mutations in Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

Researchers in Nature Genetics detect somatic mutation variation across iPSCs generated from blood or skin fibroblast cell sources, along with selection for BCOR gene mutations.

Researchers Reprogram Plant Roots With Synthetic Genetic Circuit Strategy

Root gene expression was altered with the help of genetic circuits built around a series of synthetic transcriptional regulators in the Nicotiana benthamiana plant in a Science paper.

Infectious Disease Tracking Study Compares Genome Sequencing Approaches

Researchers in BMC Genomics see advantages for capture-based Illumina sequencing and amplicon-based sequencing on the Nanopore instrument, depending on the situation or samples available.

LINE-1 Linked to Premature Aging Conditions

Researchers report in Science Translational Medicine that the accumulation of LINE-1 RNA contributes to premature aging conditions and that symptoms can be improved by targeting them.
